I left my heart in San Francisco

Genuinely, I think I did. And this is way back on 2009 *sigh*

This picture is my favourite picture of San Francisco, I have no idea why really, it just fills my little heart with joy whenever I see it.

This picture makes me happy too, I think it’s because these were some of the first pictures I took of our holiday there. We landed the afternoon before but you know what it’s like when you land, then you have to collect your car, navigate your way to your hotel without causing a 6 car pile-up because you’re driving on the opposite side of the road, then get checked in, then most importantly of all, EAT!

So, first thing the next day we were up at the crack of dawn ready for the 9am boat to Alcatraz. We’d already bought our tickets from these guys so we didn’t have to join the ever growing queue when we got there. Alcatraz is truly a place  that everyone must see, as soon as you step off of that boat you get a feeling inside that I can’t actually explain, it’s something eerie yet exciting. I would highly recommend you do the audio tour too, sends chills up your spine hearing the clanging of the cells and the wardens shouting.

The view from the dock up to the prison

One of the cells

Can you imagine seeing this view daily and not being able to visit!

This was my second time visiting San Francisco, I went in Feb 2005 with my mum and her friend, this time it was August 2009 and glorious does not even cover the weather!! Well, until you take a trip across the bridge that is…..

You see that mist, coming across the bridge it makes every inch of your body hurt like hell it's that cold.

Cold or no cold though, I’d still do it all again…..but maybe I’d take a warm coat on the ride instead of a cropped thin jacket haha

Hehe I couldn't resist. Who does this?

Downtown

They do garlic ice cream!! GARLIC ICE CREAM! Next trip there I'm visiting the Stinking Rose!

This man is a legend! The Bush Man, he has his own Facebook page too

I really would happily move to San Francisco tomorrow if I had a lottery win, it’s such a special place, from Pier 39 and the sea lions to the Golden Gate Bridge, I think everyone should put this on their bucket list…..in fact, I demand you put it on your bucket lists, you’ll thank me for it, I promise!!

And with that, I’ll love you and leave you. I may not post tomorrow on account of the fact I’ve thrown myself under a bus from sheer depression at not being able to go back here anytime soon haha I joke, honestly, don’t panic if I don’t post tomorrow!!

XOXO

PS – San Francisco, I my heart called, it wants to come home now 😦
